Let's face it, there's no way we can avoid stress in ministry... or LIFE for that matter! So I think it would be good for us to plan on it, and plan for it.
If we know we'll experience it, are experiencing it, and there's no avoiding it, we might at well plan for it and mitigate it, as best we can. Maybe we can even learn to leverage stress in ministry.
Today I'm open with you, and make a confession, then introduce the topic! Enjoy!
